interesting reactions. we're still waiting to hear from people like floyd landis and emma o'reilly, the masseuse that you have talked about as well. and we've talked about earlier tonight. but one quick mention on that samt from the united states anti-doping agency. remember lance armstrong is under a lifetime ban. if he wants to reduce that in any way, and there are people who say that lance still has dreams of competing and running in triathlons and other various races, that to reduce that lifetime ban he would have to cooperate with investigators. and that's why he's being called to testify under oath. in the hopes of reducing that, as little as eight years. so, obviously, that will be something we want to play out as well. also we've had a chance to reach out, erin, to the texas-based insurance company that paid lance armstrong more than $12 million for winning tour de france races. i think it was '02, '03 and '04. we spoke with the attorney representing that company. and that attorney tells us that in, quote in plain english, we want our money back. more than $12.5 million. ac

that was sort of what it was called. >> reporter: emma o'reilly joined armstrong's cyclingist in the 1990 and she worked as a masseuse. o'reilly also said her job involved transporting and delivering drugs for the cycling team. the report says she once made an 18-hour, round-trip between france and spain to pick up pills and even met lance armstrong in the parking lot of a mcdonald's in southern france to deliver a drug package. armstrong once told her, now, emma, you know enough to bring me down. >> history has shown that i didn't have enough to bring him down and i never wanted to bring him down. never, ever wanted to bring lansdowne. >> reporter: but in 2003 she told her story publicly for the first time. lance armstrong sued her for libel and she says vilified her as a prostitute and an alcoholic. they settled out of court. >> he's caused a lot of difficulty in my personal and business life. >> reporter: before lance armstrong greg lemond was the most famous american cyclist, but when lemond questioned armstrong's close ties to the controversial italian doctor ferrari, a man banned in

'd rather he spend the time with his children or with betsy andreau, or emma o'reilly. these are the people he destroyed. they're still suffering today. i feel lucky and fortunate i moved on from this. it's a tragic story. i'm sorry that i was involved in all this. yeah. it's not nice to see all this. >> and he's admitted to a lot of things these past two days. but one thing he's adamant about, he came back in 2009, a clean man. do you buy that? many people don't. >> i can't really be the judge of that. the jury's still out on that one. but again, the important thing is he's started this process. he's opened up. he said all seven tours, he took performance-enhancing drugs. the question is, where does he go from this? he needs to go and name names. he needs to come fully clean and tell travis and usada, where the bodies are buried. >> he said he should be allowed to compete again. do you agree? >> i agree only if he comes 110% clean. tell all of the names, from day one when he started doping, who provided it, all the way to the end. >> tyler, thank you very much. >> thank you. that must be s

, sunday times, emma o'reilly, betsy andreu, many others were saying things, you would then go on the attack for them. you were suing people and you know that they are telling the truth. what is that? >> that's -- it's a major flaw. and it's a guy who expected to get whatever he wanted and to control every outcome. and it's inexcusable and that's -- when i say there are people that will hear this and will never forgive me, i understand that. i do. and i have started that process. i think all -- all of this is a process for me. one of the steps that i process is to speak to those people directly and just say to them that i'm sorry. and i was wrong. you were right. >> our panel has been watching along with us. betsy andreu, wife of frankie andreu, armstrong's former teammate, wanted to see it all before weighing in on what she heard. also daniel coyle is back with us. also big strickland, editor at large for "bicycling" magazine and senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. betsy, your impressions on what you heard tonight. >> i'm really disappointed. he owed it to me. you owed it to
